Over 260 million toothbrushes are thrown away each year in the UK alone, and it takes around 1,000 years for a plastic toothbrush to decompose, meaning they will be around for roughly 25 generations, with disastrous consequences for the environment.
Start your child’s eco-journey off with these coloured bamboo toothbrushes. The package includes four soft-bristled biodegradable children’s toothbrushes in a recyclable, plastic-free box. Each manual toothbrush is made from a single piece of naturally sustainable bamboo, as such no glue is required.
Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial and water-resistant but one of the fastest-growing plants in the world making it wonderfully sustainable. Bamboo is a versatile plant with many uses and snacks of one of our favourite mammals, the Giant Panda, who makes an appearance on our boxes. Depending on cut use, it is possible to fully regrow the plant to full size within just 1 year.
